    Hi there, hopefully someone can help. So far I have not been able to diagnose the problem, maybe someone out there can.

    even at the lowest volumes, i have a high pitched whistle coming from my speakers. As you can probably imagine this is highly annoying.

    so in my attempt to find out what could be the problem i have changed the following components.

    Processor, Power supply, Sounds card, Speakers, Video Card, Memory, Operating system, Network card, Cable modem, DVD-RR, heyboard, mouse and Heatsink

    so, apart from the HDD, I have changed everything inside this machine and its effectively another machine entirely and its still whistling.

    Ive tried muting various inputs (and all of them) but the whistle remains. The only time it goes away is when i mute the speakers.

    any ideas at all?

    Is the sound card on the motherboard or a separate card?

    Go to the manufacturer's website and make sure you have the latest/correct drivers. Also make sure you completely remove the old soundcard drivers and disable it in the BIOS. Try removeing the old drivers in Safe Mode.

    Also you can try the soundcard in another computer to rule it out as broken.
